Looking Back at 2015 & Forward to 2016 What a wonderful—and action-packed—2015! We were reminded yet again that Mother Nature is always in charge. She brought heavy spring rains that kept our local farmers from planting their fields and delayed the growing season by several weeks. Meanwhile, our West Coast friends were having the opposite problem, thanks to a record-breaking drought. So here in Colorado, we enjoyed delicious spinach and fresh rhubarb from local farms while waiting patiently for the rest of our local season’s bounty. But we had plenty of events to keep us busy, including the Local Food Summit, Healthy Living Expo, Earth Day, VegFest, and Lafayette Peach Festival. We fueled our high-altitude athletes with organic bananas at […]
When the weather outside is frightful—and germs are making the rounds at school and in the office—one of the most enduring pleasures is hunkering down and getting cozy at home. We’ve gathered some ideas we hope will inspire more warmth in your life—and your family’s bellies—during the most wintery months. Check out our Winter Warmers recipe roundup, and read on for more inspiration to raise the temperature! 1. Go savory to satisfy on cold mornings. Eating refined carbs at breakfast, especially those with added sugar like cereal or muffins, causes metabolic swings that can mess with you all day.

Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays because it’s all about cooking and sharing Good Food with people you love. That said, we’ve all experienced Thanksgivings where we sent family members on last-minute trips to the store or ended up with overcooked turkey while we were busy making an overly ambitious number of side dishes.

Now you can pre-order a fresh (never frozen) turkey that we’ll deliver the first part of Thanksgiving week. We’re carrying what we think are the best fresh turkeys available, from sustainable-meat […]
“Do you ever see those pictures of gorgeous farm-to-table dinners and think how fun it would be to have been there?” We couldn’t agree more with Sweet Phi, a Milwaukee-based blogger who begins her #myfarm2table blog with this question. You don’t need to be a celebrated chef or a farmer to host your own DIY farm-to-table dinner. To show how fun and feasible it is to bring farm-fresh, local artisanal foods directly to your table, we partnered with our favorite food bloggers to launch the #myfarm2table challenge. We asked them to create luscious spreads for friends and family with seasonal, local ingredients found at our Shop. From recipes to decor ideas, you’ll find all the essential ingredients for the perfect farm-to-table […]
It’s no surprise to you, our customers, that people are shopping for groceries online more often. That’s what we confirmed when we polled 1,100 online grocery shoppers across the country in our first national survey. However, we were surprised to find that while the convenience of buying groceries online may save shoppers a trip to the store, most still rely on a number of brick-and-mortar stores as well as online shops to get their grocery shopping done each week. Check out more findings from our survey below and insights that Forbes and other media outlets are finding interesting.
